  • Post-doc at the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry - Department of Biogeochemical Integration
  • Assistant professor at the Institute of Landscape Ecology – Climatology working group
  • Research associate at the Institute of Landscape Ecology – Climatology working group, Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster, DGF project: ‘Net ecosystem exchange of CO2 and H2O in a subtropical mountain cloud forest (Taiwan)’

Research Interests:

I'm curious to understand the interactions between nutrient and water availability and ecosystem functioning. To measure and understand how ecosystems respond to changes in resource availability I design experiments, analyze ecosystem scale flux data, plant traits, remote sensing data, and use model approaches to gain new insights into ecosystem scale processes, interactions and feedbacks. Currently I'm working in the MaNiP project with a focus on nutrient-availability and plant trait interactions.

My work at BGI:

MANIP (MAnipulation NItrogen and Phosporous)

COS-SIF (Constraining terrestrial gross primary productivity by joint measurements of the carbonyl sulfide exchange and sun-induced fluorescence)

LCC (Land Surface Carbon Constellation Study)
